In short: Hendrix is God.

Here's an essay on Hendrix & the Dead:

A recent article in Rolling Stone mentioned that the "Family" is now putting together another multi-disc Hendrix anthology of outtakes, which to me is fantastic news. Considering all the stuff in the Hendrix vaults, their release rate is VERY slow. (They're apparently also doing yet another documentary, which could be good too.)

Thanks for posting this LIA - checking out the links will keep me from doing too much work this morning. I recently got the three night run from Winterland in Oct '68 and it's renewed my enthusiasm for the Experience. Plus some later studio work has emerged which show some subtler, beautiful elements emerging in his playing that, sadly, we never saw come to fruition.
